Forefront in Safety – Frontier 85 Car Seat

Babies grow in the blink of a eye! It seems like yesterday that I was shopping for pregnancy clothes and now I’m putting away the bouncy seat and selling the 0-3 month clothes. Just yesterday, I needed to decide whether to buy size 2 or 3 diapers. Where does the time go? I don’t want to forget products that are absolute necessity so I try to stay on top of things by planning ahead. Since travel is as important as food and water in our lives, and Athena spends hours in the van happily playing with her toys and looking in the mirror, we figured that it’s never too early to think about a larger car seat. Britax is always busy working on new products with innovative safety, comfort, and ease-of-use features to meet the needs of both parents and children, making them the perfect choice for a car seat for Athena. We’re cheap when it comes to clothing and novelties, but when it comes to safety, we want the best. After countless hours of research, we decided that it doesn’t get any better than the Frontier 85! At the forefront in harness design, impact protection, and comfort, the Frontier 85 will be enjoyed by Athena for hours of travel and adventure. Continue reading

It comes with all the necessities: an infant car seat for road travel, a comfortable bassinet and bassinet stand for nursery and infant-use, a functional diaper bag, and the much-loved Switch Four stroller that holds both the car seat and bassinet. Instead of being called “switch four”, it should be called “switch ten” or more. Continue reading

The Most Highly Recommended Baby Carrier – ERGObaby

I’ve talked about babywearing before and I’m sure I’ll talk about it in the future, but it’s something that I plan to do quite often with Little Miss Carter. I truly believe that it strengthens the bond between parent and child. Ultimately, I want to be close to my little girl.

Worth Its Weight in Gold – Boppy Total Body Pillow

At six months pregnant, I’d become incredibly agitated at night. No matter how tired I was, I just couldn’t get comfortable; when I would wake up in the morning, I would have such severe back pain that I couldn’t stand up. I’d wince and almost cry just walking to the bathroom. I couldn’t imagine surviving another three months with that type of suffering. Then, something completely changed my sleeping world – the Boppy Total Body Pillow. Boppy has become a household name with their signature feeding pillows that offer moms a comfortable way to nurse their baby. They’ve utilized that knowledge and experience to design the Boppy Total Body Pillow, which provides expectant moms comfort and support at night so they can get a good night’s rest. This pillow is the perfect size and shape; unlike a conventional pillow, the Total Body Pillow allows full support for my entire body. From my head, my developing belly, and my legs, this pillow provides the utmost comfort and relief. Continue reading
